Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a safe and predictable way to enhance your smile. Quite often, it’s used independently or alongside other cosmetic procedures. With our take-home professional system, you can enjoy perks like

  • Whitening your teeth at a time that suits your schedule
  • Better control over tooth sensitivity
  • The ability to easily top off for upcoming events
  • Trays that last for years (simply purchase gel refills when needed)

How Professional Whitening Kits Work

We’ll take a set of moulds of your teeth to fit your smile with a custom pair of whitening trays. When they’re ready, we’ll give you specific instructions on how to apply the gel and wear your kit at home. Usually, it’s for about an hour a day. If you have sensitive teeth you may prefer to whiten less frequently or apply sensitivity toothpaste between applications.

The ingredients in the gel safely oxidise stain particles, lifting discolouration from your enamel. Professional whitening gel is safe for deep stains caused by foods and drinks as well as natural tooth discolouration.

Used as directed, a home whitening system can provide drastic results in 2-4 weeks. Much of it will depend on your diet, as dark liquids—such as tea, coffee, or red wine—may delay treatment. If for any reason you need to top off at home and are out of gel, you can purchase a refill from us as needed. There’s no need to re-make the moulds.
